Pros: The baskets and tee pads were in excellent condition. I really like the elevation that this course presents. The locals were nice and really helpful with navigation. The course is short but still presents it's challenges starting at hole 1 where you have to throw over a creek and the trees. Hole 7 is challenging with the creek on the right hand side all the way to the basket. I loved hole 7 and the risk/reward shot. You can either go over the water and get the bird, or go straight and play it safe.
Cons: Navigation would of been a little difficult if the local mini was not taking place, where I could ask questions. Hole 1 was tough because the trees were so tall that throwing over them was tough without a tomahawk. Be careful on 2-4 with the crazy elevation, it is steep. When throwing across the creek on hole 4, walk back to hole 3's fairway and go down the path from there to cross the creek. The path from 4's tee pad is extremely steep. I didn't like the tee pad location on hole 8, right by the fence, where if you throw it over there is no getting it back.

Pros: Nicely maintained course. NOT a drive-approach-putt course. There are some decent birdie/ace shots if you've got the arm.
Cons: Can be a bit tight, especially when there are others using the park. DG'ers are definitely looked at as 2nd class citizens and nobody gets out of your way.
Other Thoughts: Having family about 30 miles outside Angelo makes this a fun course to play to get away. Is always on my To-Do list when in town.

Pros: The course was alot more difficult than it looked. Hole 1 was pretty tough just because where the water is located. I really loved throwing off the cliff at hole 3 just be careful on the way down.
Cons: Way to many damn stickers as with any course in West Texas I suppose. A few holes are prime for losing disc (I lost 2 in the water on 6). I enjoyed the rough terrain but some might not enjoy the steep rocky slopes like I did. Also there is the occasional guy heckling you from his balcony in the ghetto apartments on the cliff when you miss your putt or lose a disc on 6.
